Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200400117Event: 08/23/1998Employee Killed In Fall When Thrown From Scaffold
Employee #1 and a coworker were using a two-point suspended scaffold to descend a 1,000 ft tall antenna. A malfunction caused the scaffold to fall approximately 50 ft, then stop suddenly. This resulted in a rebound effect that caused Employee #1 to be ejected from the scaffold. He fell approximately 200 ft and was killed. The coworker remained on the scaffold, but sustained serious injuries. Neither Employee #1 nor the coworker was using any form of fall protection devices.
